I again apologize for the lack of updates but it's been busy. Seeing as today is Saturday and I haven't adhered to Spider Saturday in awhile I thought I should dig up a spider, however I'm still a bit wary on the identification of the remaining few specimens and I thus hesitate to post them yet. Hopefully over the summer I will be collecting many more specimens, but since I'm not posting a spider I'm going to just go with something from Natural History.
This guy, which I'm going out on a limb and declaring him Apis mellifera, was collected in Ithaca, New York, USA sometime in early September 2011. I unfortunately am lacking more details on this specimen as the record I keep is incomplete on specimens with ID numbers less than 26. But anyway it's a unique pose he has in the vial, so enjoy.
